Jared Kushner omits some foreign contacts on security form

Jared Kushner omits some foreign contacts on security form

Rather, they insist that Bannon's appointment to the National Security Council was to keep an eye on Michael Flynn, Trump's initial national security adviser who was ousted after it was revealed he had talks with the Russian ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak. Kushner, meanwhile, appears ascendent, even as Trump continues to go to both men for advice. Swan reported that Bannon had told associates in the past 24 hours that he "loved a gun fight".

This file photo taken on March 3, 2017 shows Senior Advisor to the President, Jared Kushner (L), walking with his wife Ivanka Trump to board Marine One at the White House in Washington, DC.

The White House is increasingly frustrated by the never-ending stream of stories about palace intrigue, warring internal factions and imminent staff shake-ups. Meanwhile, if Bannon's fortunes continue to decline, so will a certain sinister mystique that's surrounded the administration, a sense that it can create its own reality and act with impunity. Increasingly, that means reveling in secondhand reports about the utter disarray of his administration, whether it's the news that his wife might hate him or the utter ineptitude of his cronies like Sean Spicer.

In 2016, there were cries of outrage and calls of "conflicts of interest", related to China when CNN Money reported that Donald Trump's suits and ties were made in China. The official also said Bannon was there to "de-operationalize" the NSC, an apparent jab at Obama administration national security adviser Susan Rice. One is family, the other isn't, and Kushner has nearly certainly invested more of his "brand" in Trump than Bannon has. And while officials declined to detail the specific recommendations of Trump's top aides, the strikes that the President ordered reflected a break from the nationalist stance he adopted as a candidate that was driven, in large part, by Bannon's advice.

A Florida bill that would shift the burden of proof in "stand your ground" pretrial hearings is heading back to the Senate. SB 340 , a similar bill, is scheduled be heard in its final committee, the Senate rules committee, on Thursday.

Trump wants to drop Priebus for two very simple reasons - he failed to deliver the votes for POTUS to repeal and replace Obamacare and is the one who vouched for Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, who has been nothing but an embasement for the White House.

The fighting between Kushner and Bannon has been "nonstop" in recent weeks, according to sources who spoke on condition of anonymity.

He is seen as wielding vast power with the president, who has come to lean heavily on the former Goldman Sachs executive for the direction of his economic and foreign policy agenda. I think this would be about his image.
